Winnipeg Girl Captures Lady Gaga’s Attention

February 17, 2011 11:15 AM | Entertainment

A 10-year-old Winnipeg girl has caught the eye of Lady Gaga after covering one of her songs on YouTube.

Maria Aragon posted the video Wednesday of her rendition of “Born This Way.”

Gaga immediately caught wind of the performance, posting the link to the YouTube video to her more than eight million Twitter followers. “This is why I make music,” part of Gaga’s tweet read.

Maria’s YouTube channel includes other covers of songs, including takes on Bruno Mars and Kelly Clarkson.

Maria’s video was featured on Perez Hilton’s blog and she was even interviewed by Virgin Radio Toronto.

One of her dreams is to perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
